.NET runtime 23 MB ?!?!?!

I am looking for the .NET runtime.  I thought this was a 5 MB download so that people can run C# .NET Windows apps that I write.

The one found here is 23 MB!!!

All I want is for people to be able to run the .EXE

Am I looking in the right place?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is the correct link. The download is > 20 MByte.

Note that for Window XP users they can easily get the .NET through the "Windows Update" feature (assuming they have good internet access, since this is about the same size)
